Installation of 3.1.2 Free

Hi I have a client who has installation issues on two PCs installing 3.1.2. It gives and error saying the following file is missing: msvcp110.dll

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this please? Should I reinstall .net framework? Visual C or another MS app?

Thanks
Charl

In brief:  try C:\Program Files\Lumion Free 3.1.2\Redist2010 \vcredist_x64.exe as part of the Lumion installer that may repair the VC runtime files, this is for a 64 bit system, vcredist_x86.exe for 32 bit.

--------------

From a browse on the internet, it seems that such a report generally occurs when the PC's registry has a wrong entry for that file.

There are two general options:
1. run a registry tool to scan and do fixes on the registry.  No recommendations on what tool and considerable care must be taken using such tools, only use a previously trusted one.

2. the file itself is installed as part of the Microsoft® C Runtime Library 2010, so it may be easier to try a re-install/repair.  It would seem the safer way to go, and generally does not take too long for the installer to verify existing files and do the update.  Re-boot afterwards.  

There is a file: vcredist_x64.exe as part of the Lumion installer that may repair or re-install, this is for a 64 bit system install only,  see C:\Program Files\Lumion Free 3.1.2\Redist2010 (make sure its the 2010 and not the 2011 file).  If the client has a 32 bit system then you may find a similar vcredist_x86.exe to use.

Alternatively, the runtime distribution can be obtained from Microsoft downloads.

Note: this reply is provided as is with no express or implied warranty  :-D etc, if the client does not have a PC Technician to provide support then please also search the web for possible solutions.

If you want to be on the safe side, please ask your client to install VS Redist 2008, 2010 and 2012:

The upcoming Lumion 3.2 will include those 3 redistributables, so people with pristine Windows installations won't have to do this manually anymore.

I uninstalled Lumion Free, switched off the AV and installed the mentioned Redist files. Reinstalled and all is working.

Thanks for the help.
